Tour Description:

I will pick you from your hotel or Airbnb and we will hit the Heroes Square. You will hear about our history and some Hungarian fun facts.  From this dense area, we will move further to a fairy castle, and we will play around with the architectural styles.

Further, I will tell you about our world class bath houses, and we sneak into the Szechenyi bath. You will not need any bathing costume. 😀 

We will move forward to the downtown area with a World Heritage metro line. We will check the St. Stephen Basilica and the Jewish Quarter.  We will have a hearty Goulash and something to drink. 

Moving forward, we will stop at the Hungarian Parliament and we will cross towards the Buda side through the Castle Funicular. We will stroll around the Castle district, not missing to talk about the Buda Castle, the Fisherman’s Bastion and the Matthias Church

I told you that this tour is checking all your “Budapest boxes!” 😉
